I am a hit and miss kinda gal. Lately my brain is scattered.  As much as I want to blog here, 100 things come up and I am taken away and then it is time to call it a day and get rest. But I have so many ideas and thoughts and things to say. So here I am!
Lots of lovely January birthday wishes to send out.
This mountain gorilla is 61 according to this google image. I am just a tad older than he is. But although she doesn't come over to social media I wanted to say Happy Birthday to Sandy F. a sweet lady I worked with for many years. I choose this image because she once confided in me that had she not gotten married and had two beautiful daughters she would have loved to live among these beautiful creatures. Sandy was a tiny little auburn haired gal and she never struck me as the mountain gorilla living type. But we talked about this a lot and I agreed with her. God created some incredible creatures when he created this species. Smart and loyal and incredibly kind. Happy birthday to Sandy, who works hard with her hubby Rick running their appliance store.
My nephew Troy has a birthday today. He plays the sax and is very musical and also very kind. I wish him lots of love today and always. I will always remember my dad's oldest sister, Auntie Mima. She once told us her youngest son Bobby insisted on playing the saxophone! She said he lost interest and the darn thing sat under his bed long after he left home and got married. It is a fond memory I have of her, smiling and telling a story to us.
To my PH girl Laura K. Happy Birthday. Laura is a quilter, an excellent quilter. I wish I had her talent for it. So I am wishing her well today. I am also congratulating Laura and her son Cody. He was just a tiny baby yesterday wasn't he? He is going to NASCAR! Cody has loved auto racing since he was a kid and he is good at it. No he is terrific at it! I always have a story to share and this one was shared previously. I watched Harrison one day and he wanted to watch the Mickey Mouse Clubhouse. A commercial came on and I heard him say "Vroom Vroom"! I looked up and there was Danica Patrick on my screen. I said, do you like her? He replied Y E S ! I said do you like her because she's pretty and drives fast cars? He replied, "Vroom Vroom"! When I tell this story I am reminded of a former co worker. Helen Vroom (no, I am not kidding) was a pretty young Hispanic lady and her hubby was Matt Vroom. He was like 100, at least he looked to be 100 when I was a mere 18 years old. Anyway Helen and Matt had a really lovely marriage and I often wonder how they ended up together.  SHe worked, he was retired and he cooked wonderful meals for her. I always love a good love story and they had a good one.

Stop over and visit Aw.....Mondays. Sandee and all the fun folks participating will make you smile.
Although we have had cold days and nights we have been lacking in moisture. We need more snow but thinking about Spring can't be a bad thing can it?
I love this verse in Scripture. But the thoughts listed here can make you think about how the earth is round too.

This Love is... makes me think I am truly blessed. Sharing because of Annie at McGuffy's Reader- Sparks.

Maxine is not a good role model today. She is eating all the cookies and I am trying to stop!

Finally another January birthday. Sarah B is the daughter of a dear blogger, Marilyn who passed away too soon. Marilyn would be so happy to see Sarah married and she would love Alex, Sarah's hubby and Oliver Jude their son. Blogging is such a beautiful community. I weighed in on blogging with some bloggers at social media. I appreciate each person who stops by to say hello. I do not have a fancy blog. I don't have a fabulous house to share photos of. I love my phamily. I love my faith and I love my truly wonderful blogging friends. See you soon.

I agree with Maxine. It's more fun to eat the cookies than to sweep and dust. You don't need a fancy house or a fancy blog. Blogging is a way of chatting with our blogger friends. My blog is not fancy. It's more of a daily journal for Pogo and me. I have met so many wonderful folks through blogging. I can visit with friends all over the world and never leave my living room. How awesome is that!! You have a wonderful day my friend. Hugs, Edna B.
